It’s the final tuneup for KU prior to Big 12 play.
Kansas welcomes the Eagles from Eastern Michigan into Allen Fieldhouse for the final matchup of 2018.
The Jayhawks are the #5 team in the country in the AP Poll, while the Eagles are unranked. KenPom currently has Kansas at #5 and Eastern Michigan at #190.
By the numbers, EMU is the lowest-rated opponent KU will face this season. The Eagles do have wins over Boston University and Drexel, but have also lost to Duke by 38, Rutgers by 27, and TCU by 18.
In that Rutgers game, Eastern only scored 4 points in the first half.
Here are the essentials:
Eastern Michigan: 6-6, 0-0
#1 Kansas: 10-1, 0-0
Line: Kansas -22.5
